Publisher's summary

Did you ever wake up wondering where you were…and perhaps equally important, how you got there? Yeah, me too. The only the thing is, it usually happens when I've been drinking…and I'd been dry for the better part of two years. I'm Commodore Jeremy David Riker…my friends call me JD or just plain “Dog.” I have the dubious honor of running a starship boneyard in the middle of nowhere.

Fun Scifi

Summary: Jeremy Riker wakes up feeling like he must have had a really bad night. Turns out he’s been elected to save the galaxy.



Additional Comments:

- Aside from the main characters affiliation to his past job, the whole boneyard dog angle is kind of lost on me.

- The blurb is stylistic but tells the reader zip about the story. The only thing you get out of it is a sense for the writing style. It’s first person, lighthearted, and tongue-in-cheek for the most part. If that style works for you, you’ll probably enjoy it. If it ticks you off, avoid like a plague.

- Quite a few places have comments referencing future events. While an okay tactic to use once in a while, it got old very quickly.

- Content warnings: Nothing described but a lot of innuendo. I think there might be a curse word or two.

- Lacks a sense of closure. It’s very short for a scifi story, which isn’t necessarily bad. It falls into that series trap of “we won, or did we”?



Conclusion:

An intriguing start to a fun series. If you can get past the few annoying quirks, you’ll probably enjoy the tale.
